Pierre Garçon signed a massive deal with the Washington Redskins. The Colts have turned their attention to a familiar face as a result: Reggie Wayne.
The Colts lost wide receiver Pierre Garcon, 25, earlier in the day when he signed a six-year, $42.5 million contract with the Washington Redskins that threatened to leave them without their No. 1, Wayne, and No. 2 receivers with a rookie quarterback, probably Stanford’s Andrew Luck expected to be their first pick in the April draft.
With the Colts and Wayne talking, there is at least a chance Luck will have a steady hand and savvy head working on the outside.
Mike Chappell reports he won't come cheap:
Colts will have to pay Reggie market value. Asked him if he'd give team 'bluelight special.' Said 'I don't shop at Kmart.' Nice.— Mike Chappell (@mchappell51) March 14, 2012
The Colts have also been linked to tight end John Carlson and defensive end Cory Redding.
@natedunlevy finally, a bright spot! Does this 3-year deal mean that Wayne will retire wearing the horseshoe?
I'm glad. Garcon leaving is a sigh and I have not sighed like that since they released Sanders. The guy would show us glimpses of talent but he did have his issues. Three years are more than enough time to prove that you will not be number one. He did prove something. You cannot rely on him to catch the ball so good pick up Redskins, Cooley is crying right now.
This is not a good sign about the new management team, to have to scramble like this. They ignore Wayne and now all of a sudden try to woo him back. Not a good start for Grigson.
